So much so that the next 2 nights, we bought chicken and steaks from the Yosemite Valley supermarket and... read more

Great staff. Very friendly and accommodating. Was staying at the hotel for business and my colleges tend to close places down way after hours. The staff was very nice even when we didn't leave until hours after closing. Thank you for your hospitality.

Good food experience, attentive staff, a good option to eat out in the park. They have lovely artwork on the walls - worth a visit!

The ambiance is great. The service not so good. The food very expensive for what you get and it's really not that good. I think it may be the same stuff (like the soup) you can get at the food court. Just do the food court!

So happy to actually be able to eat. I have major food allergies and each day they had a vegetarian plate that was free from soy, corn and wheat. Amazing!!! The food was flavorful and plentiful!

We anticipated the breakfast buffet this trip, as our last trip they were running it. Even though we were initially disappointed, the food we ordered off the menu did not disappoint. Definitely suggest giving them a try. Good food, great staff.

We were going to order pizza from the on-site pizza parlor. It was closed so we at here. The staff was great and the food was terrific. I had fish and my son had steak. We were both satisfied with our meals. The bread (that you get before dinner) was fresh and warm enough to melt the butter. Also, try... More

Since there aren't an array of restaurant choices, this is a very popular dinner spot. Patrons were encouraged to wait in the bar. The food was fine, no complaints but nothing I can recommend either. Service once seated, was fast and accommodating. It's Yosemite....one doesn't visit for the food.
